Trending Tuesday: Sneakers are . . . in?

Of all the trends that could ever happen, the one I’d least expect is a sneaker trend. I’d also never expect that I’d actually like it. Retro flat-forms, hip Converse, and the all new, glam and sexy wedge sneaker are going to be staples for spring this year. But how on earth do you work sneaker wedges into your wardrobe if your normal style isn’t tomboy chic or relaxed and cool? Here are a few ideas:

Does your aesthetic lean more towards rocker chic than sporty spice? Black wedges with stud detailing look hip and cool – just add destroyed jeans and a cheeky tee. Throw on a military-inspired jacket and a fringed bag to put some edge into the look. Finish with small earrings and a fun ring.

Polished and flowery more your style? Try a pair of nude sneaker wedges with floral printed pants and a matching nude blouse. The asymmetrical cut of the shirt makes it easier to pull off the half tucked-in look, or it can just look chic without any extra effort.Add a big gold chain, a red bag, and red lips to up the fabulous factor.

Want to take a risk and dress up the sneaker wedge for a glam look? Try this tall black and nude version for a more chic and sexy look. Add a simple black bodycon dress and gold accessories – think a glittery clutch, chain and skull bracelets, and bands of gold rings.

While the sneaker may be a total turn off to some, it’s definitely a trend to try if you like experimenting with fashion. So lace ’em up, glam ’em up, and put your best foot forward – you can make them look fabulous!
